Hey,
I'm keen on putting car into the wash n shine. I'm not a club member so can I still enter and if so, what time do I need to be there by?

Cheers,
Christian

Hi there.

All members of the public with an Alfa are welcome to attend - and we now have a visitors category for non members.

Come along say 10.00 am , enter into the Wash n Shine (forms available on the day) and judging should be around midday.

Thanks.

Had a great time. Great to see all those loved cars. Thought I'd have a quick look and stayed for 3 hours.

Dragged the missus along and she's finally an ALFA convert.

Well done.

Can only agree with the comments about a terrific day. Well done John. Compliments on a the day always appreciated.  Great to see the 'oldies' turn out too. How good did the 8C sound?. I did think about holding the microphone close to the exhaust so that the neighborhood could hear it too.
There were a couple of items handed in during the day which need to be returned to their owners;
1. a digital camera memory card, and
2. a small bundle of items found after the owner left for the day. Bundle found at the southern end of the oval.
Ring me on 0405 383 431 to reclaim

Hi,

I have some photos from the day. I'll happily post a few up when i get home today. I was there with my Dad in the Black (Brera) Spider.

Thanks for the fantastic day, seeing all of those gorgeous Alfa's made me consider selling my mx5 and buying one!

Thank you ladies and gents.  Superb day and overall about attendance 50% up from last year.  With next year for the 2010 Celebration Spettacolo, can only anticipate a bit more (weather dependant).  Thanks to all who helped out on the day as it was a tremendous group effort.

Alfas on the Field - approx 170 cars & Wash n Shine  - approx   70 cars.
Non Alfas  -  crikey - another 20 cars.  Dealers' cars   - approx  10 cars.
And we can not forget tray trucks, vans & trailers - about 10.   All up 200.

Not bad despite the dust.  Last year we had about 130 all up and 50 Wash n Shine entries.

Cheers all.

I went along for a look. I was impressed with the quality of the cars there!

I saw a lot leaving on the way there though so I will have to get there earlier next year! Maybe even buy an Alfa one of these days too  :D

yeah well done lads, great day! I was very impressed with the turnout compared to the last one I went to (2007). Was great to finally see another GTV pre 1984 with my style interior! Found it hilarious to see another owner with a bit of plastic shoved in his hazard light button to keep it from popping out! I feel your pain, I'm on my 3rd one in 3 years..

Highlight of the day would definitely have to be the burgundy 6c. (I think that's what it was, I can't remember) What a brilliant brilliant car. Great display of Alfa's heritage.

Great job guys, well organised. Running late I got there around 12 and had detailed my car but from what I saw  it looked packed so I just parked on the street.

Here's some shots from my camera angle (in low res for posting);

I forgot I can only post 4 at a time!

PS I think these pics sum it up...sun, classic racing Alfas, a gelati van and tray truck...what more would an Alfa owner need?  :-*
